Bryan-College Station, Texas (June 3, 2022)- The Brazos Valley Bombers take an 11-5 victory against the Acadiana Cane Cutter in their 2nd of 4 game series.

The Cane Cutters tack on another 2 runs in the top of the 1st off an RBI double down the 1st baseline from CF Justin Williams to drive home Kade Dupont and Matt Abshire. 

After allowing three in the top of the 1st, the Bombers were able to put up one of their own in the bottom. In a wild series of events leadoff batter, Travis Chestnut stole his way around the bases to put the Bombers on the board. The score after one, 3-1 Cane Cutters.  

1st baseman Cole Kracmer was able to find a hole in left center field to drive home 3B Riley Bender for an RBI double in the bottom of the 4th. Bender, in his first game for the bombers, scored from 2nd base after hitting a moon shot to the left field fence. Kracmer found his way home to score in the 4th off a fielder's choice hit by Chestnut. After four innings the score was tied 3-3.

The Bombers took a two-run lead in the 6th and never looked back, scoring two in the 7th, two in the 6th, and four in the 8th inning. The Cane Cutters kept it close through 7.5 innings, walking in a run in the 7th and a Jake Lapriaire RBI in the top of the 8th.

The Cane Cutters' hopes of coming back were chopped in the 8th thanks to a beautiful hit triple by Riley Bender that scored two. After loading the bases, Brandon Bishop takes a ball to the shoulder and gives Bender a free trip to home plate for the 3rd Bombers' score of the inning. An RBI single hit by Travis Chestnut caps to bring home Mike Adair was the last of the bombers scoring and sealed the 11-5 victory for the Brazos Valley Bombers.
